I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There is a tried and true format I follow each and every time I style a kitchen countertop. We’re going to call it the all mighty cooking station for lack of a better term. It’s that spot right next to the stove where I want all the things I constantly use and rather than dig them out of the cabinet (who has time for that?!), I like to set up a hub with my current favorites. It’s a combo that makes go-to’s easily accessible and it also happens to be pretty. Which we all know is the end goal here. These are the secret ingredients I always keep within reach…
Salt Crock + Pepper Mill + Oil Cruet + Utensil Crock + Good Looking Base
If you look next to my stove, you will 100% see this combo. Sneak a peek into my clients’ kitchens, yep all there too. It’s like my styling calling card and it works friends, I promise.
And, obviously you could modify this to work for your own diet or routine. Don’t like a salt crock? Add a salt and pepper mill. Use olive and avocado oil in your cooking? Add 2 oil cruets instead of 1, etc, etc. It’s super easy to switch out with your usual suspects; even if that includes a wine cooler for your favorite bottle of rosé. No judgement! Have a look at some combos that play really nice together.
